Habitat for Humanity of Hall County has named a new director of construction for its projects, including in the Copper Glen subdivision.
Free Walker, a former site superintendent at Habitat for Humanity in Atlanta, will take over the position, according to an email from organization spokeswoman Christine Osasu.
While in Atlanta, Walker led the construction of 35 new homes and supervised more than 7,500 volunteers, according to Osasu. Walker also worked at nonprofit HouseProud Atlanta, where he recruited, trained and managed volunteers in home repairs.
“Free’s extensive experience and knowledge of construction will thrust Habitat for Hall County forward as we continue to partner with the community and low-income families living in substandard conditions to provide decent and affordable housing solutions,” said Executive Director Alison McElvery.
